We've been shortlisted for a really big award. Nominet are the .uk domain registrars, and they also have a charitable foundation that supports and showcases UK enterprises. The Nominet Internet Awards are a part of their charitable work, and we've been nominated in a brand new category for an Outstanding Contribution to the UK Internet.

It's a huge, massive deal for the Foundation. And I don't expect us to win; Tim Berners Lee is on the list too. But please, please vote for us - we'd really appreciate it!

Terrific, thank you; we're refreshed and happy. And will never, ever make sangria with cheap Metaxa again.

I'm guessing the "internet award" isn't for DDoS-ing the websites of 2 major companies...? ;) :lol:

We won! More tomorrow (or when Nominet get me the pictures from tonight), but here are some cell phone pics from folks in the crowd:
